Hi parvinderpannu,


Welcome to the Suppport Forums!

Have you tried a battery pull? If that didn't resolve it, you may want to try uninstalling Facebook for BlackBerry then reinstalling it again and testing the chat feature.


Hope this helps.

Re: Facebook shows chat error 503 on Curve 9360

i have the same problem except i have a curve 9300. ive been searching on the internet and this problem has been going on for a year and its a big miscommunication that the facebook makers still havent fixed. I read this one answer where the man told me to clear my facebook cache (found in options), then logout. restart the device (pull out the battery) and then log back in. i tried it and it worked! .. but then it stopped working again! so i need some answer that will fix it forverr!
